Social Responsibility

Making a positive contribution to the communities in which we work and live - through promoting social, environmental and economic benefits - is an important part of the Gallagher identity. In Canada, the US and around the world, we give back through employee and company contributions to support charitable organizations. Our dedicated employees also donate hours of their time in direct volunteer work and team-based fundraising events. Our efforts help children, people with severe illnesses and other members of the community find hope and support.

Over the last year together we served 112,706 volunteer hours!!

Our People

We attribute our long-standing success to our people. They are our best asset, helping our clients navigate an increasingly complex insurance market in a no-nonsense way. We don’t just want the employee on the other end of the phone or across the table to be knowledgeable - we want them to be someone you want to have a conversation with. We respect your time, which is why we’re happy to do the legwork for you, helping you to secure the best insurance cover for your unique needs.

Today we are a global force for change, using our considerable experience, confidence and knowledge to reduce risk and provide our expertise wherever we go. We achieve this by forming lifelong partnerships with our clients, making business better for everyone. But that’s enough about us; get in touch to find out how we can work with you.
